. does that work on the national stage? i mean obama won women by 11 points, i believe, in the 2012 exit polls? >> i think abortion is a pretty complicated political instrument. if you look at the democrats in texas right now trying to reach out to latinos, this probably isn't the issue that they would have chosen because it -- >> in texas. >> -- yeah. in texas amongst the latino community there is a real complicated relationship with abortion. i think part of what happens is the more subtle nuanced approach. for instance, if you wipe out more than half of the installed base of clinics in texas, you all the family planning goes with it. all the -- and so you end up with people who are often getting pregnant at higher rates because you have taken out other options. i do think it is an argument that calls for an incredible amount of nuance. never gets it. >> but politically, i mean this is the opposite of what the republican autopsy report on 2012 recommended. they were supposed to be a more inclusive party and you've seen this movement in states across the country other past 20 weeks. now
are they going to do what the immigration bill that is on the floor right now and the different amendments regarding that and the bill on gun control but would welcome the amendment for them to have to vote on and that's going to come back. the obama health care bill is a vote that keeps on giving and mary landrieu will have to keep defending the fact that she supported that and the able republican from louisiana. >> host: ben nelson of nebraska just retired and said it wasn't because he thought he would lose but he wasn't going to win because of that. but yes i think that mary landrieu is a fascinating example and actually, we only have about six minutes left. so i wanted to ask you before we wrap up here, is who you think among the women that had researched the fear in the senate now or they were earlier in the past decade who is doing the more interesting things. it's the most interesting way or the most fearful perhaps. >> guest: the influence in the senate i think that patty murray is very close for the democratic leadership and if there is a woman that is going to advance and the mom
. and so getting egypt right is i think imperative and the obama administration knows it and i think if they look back in hindsight and say what could have been done differently during this transition, perhaps a more active role by the united states during helping egypt with the transition, not just to holding elections, but setting up a -- the ability to govern in a democratic way. that is what got lost here. egypt figured out -- egypt knows how to do protests, elections -- >> was morsi interested in that? that's a question. was morsi interested in that? was he interested in governing? if you look at david brooks' column from the "times" over the past weekend, he listed all the things that morsi did to show that he really wasn't interested in governing democratically, that he wanted to consolidate power. of course, he made himself the supreme ruler over the judiciary, said they were irrelevant. i guess that's the real question. how much -- how much influence did the white house feel they had over morsi's moves over the past year? >> well, i don't think they had much. they did -- obv
, truly support democracy in egypt can get together to take power peacefully. but senator mccain is right. i don't think there is any doubt that in real functional terms, this is a military coup. what is happening is that president obama's foreign policy in that region, which he enunciated in 2009 in the same city of cairo is now running up against reality in cairo. and his support for democratic ideals as he spoke of them in 2009 are being tested on the streets right now. talking to white house -- one white house official, they're not going any farther than they went today for now. carney, jay carney's statement was as far as they're going to go at this point. >> joel, i see that some protests there see america as being too close to the muslim brotherhood. >> well, it's an irony of sorts, michael, because the united states is going to be blamed, regardless, frankly, of the situation. and we have to get used to that. context matters here. we have to remember that nearly 22 million egyptians, more than a quarter of their population signed a petition for mohamed morsi to leave power. and th
cialis for daily use and a 30-tablet free trial. >>> so let's get right to my first reads of the morning. immigration reform was supposed to be the signature achievement of the first year of president obama's second term but did it die yesterday in the house? they say it's just a comprehensive approach that is a nonstarter. but the hot rhetoric they're using sounds an awful lot like an attempt to provide cover if nothing gets done. about an hour from now, the president and vice president will hold a private meeting with the architects of the senate immigration bill. after house republicans huddled for two hours wednesday with questioners lining up more than ten deep to hash out the path forward on immigration, the bottom line is clear. the senate bill backed by mccain, schumer and potential 2016 conservative prospect marco rubio is despised and dead on arrival in the house. >> house republicans want to do this on our term and not on the senate terms and not on the white house terms. >> it was not a well thought out approach in the senate. it's the reason the senate bill has little chance
't watching how conservative and republican politics actually work right now. anyway, that is happening in las vegas this weekend. and if that particular blend of republican congressional leadership and the president obama secretly foreign conspiracy theory, if that particular blend of that combination is not your thing in las vegas this weekend, you do have other options. all you have to do is leave the venetian where the republican ladies are hosting their kevin mccarthy birther guy gala, leave the venetian, take a left on the strip, and five minutes down the road you'll find yourself at the planet hollywood resort and casino in las vegas, you will find you have another republican politics combined with birtherism option on the same weekend. because the planet hollywood resort and casino this weekend is hosting something called freedom fest. it's going on right now. it will keep going into this weekend. this year's highlights include the author of a book called "evoluti "evolution: a theory in crisis." also the obligatory "is the united nations becoming our master" confab. our pal from down

substations. we took advantage of that which is where president obama spoke last week and it is all sort of blurry right now. been developed another couple of plans that were emergency power plants. we have many of these installed capacity in tanzania in this context it is quite significant. particularly when they have suffered for the last three years, which has left huge parts of the country without power. primarily because it has simply not been there. whether it be climate change, whether it be freak weather patterns, there just hasn't been enough rain. so when the water goes down, they cannot find hydras and suddenly there isn't enough capacity on the grid. that is what happens across africa, which is why we see over and over again the governments that are paying ridiculous amounts of money on these which are polluting and are ridiculously expensive. but they need the power to keep the economy moving in to keep people happy. it is an economic issue and it is why it happens. we have stepped in to try to fill that gap. in tanzania we also have a couple interesting projects that we are

time to call code bleu on the rest of the president's signature law? we will be right back. ♪ tracy: obamacare employer mandate getting delayed. struggling with setting big ♪ tracy: well, obamacare is coming apart at the scenes, another effort to dismantle the law has just begun. after the obama administration this week gave businesses another year to comply with the regulation. this is the latest in a string of bad news for theaw. all five now say it is a train wreck. peter barnes joins us from washington. let's lay this out. how many people does this actually affect? >> reporter: rht now about 158 million people get their health insurance through their employer. so in theory the employer mandates covers them. however, in practice companies offer their employees health insurance as a benefit to try to attract the best a brightest. the congressional budget office did look at this question last yearf what would happen if obamacare were totally repealed. it estimated, believe it or not, that actually about 2 million people that would stay -- would get health care coverage from their

about the obama administration handling. some are saying this week that they should have anticipated this. that they're caught looking like they were supporting morsi when they shouldn't have been. >> right, well, that's true. you know, they didn't pay as close attention. they probably assumed the morsi government was more stable than it really was. i'm not sure i blame them. i don't think it had any effect. i don't think we did anything that caused a change in egypt. i do think, it's always important to referment i was talking to the state department and said said to me you have to remember n this building we don't do foreign policy, we do foreign relations. we make relationships with people who are in power. and so our ambassador there and probably our entire apparatus was building relationships with the muslim brotherhood, probably you know, holding their nose a little but building relationships. and result of those relationships which were probably an of the to have some influence, they looked more friendly to the muslim brotherhood than probably they should have. ambassador cert

, as many as 5 million votes might have been lost which is almost exactly president obama's popular vote margin over mitt romney. >> absolutely. there is a lot at stake in the vote suppression laws and they affect vast numbers of people and the voting rights act was incremental in stopping several of them that affected huge numbers of people in texas, south carolina, florida. those would have been in effect in full force in 2012 election if it weren't for the voting rights act. and the voting rights act is important not only for these big statewide races but where the little bread and butter happens is at local races, municipal elections and school board elections where 85% of the discriminatory voting changes that were blocked happen and it affects people in their day-to-day lives. there the racism has been really far more widespread, doesn't get the same kind of national attention that, for example, a city of mississippi cansless an election just after african-americans become a majority of the registered voters and when just last year in bow month, texas, they rejiggered the elections

as their rights as a minority. -- some pause as to what is left as their rights as a minority. host: you can send us an e-mail or send us a tweet. some other voices on this, including senator barack obama on the senate floor in 2005. [video clip] >> one day democrats will be in the majority again. mr. president, licensed the talk is more about power than fairness -- i sense the talk is more about power than fairness . they can get away with it. the right -- if the right of free and open debate is taken away from the minority party i fear the party atmosphere in washington will be poisoned to the point where no one will be able to agree on anything. that does not serve anyone's best interest at it is not what the patriots who founded this democracy had in mind. host: that old line, "where you stand depends on where you sit." three years later barack obama is in the white house and dealing with some of the same issues that has frustrated previous guest: guest: presidents, including george w. bush. where you stand depends on where you sit applies to all senators. when you are in the minority you are
have. -- tracy: so doom and gloom. obama thought they did a good thing politically by postponing the employer mandate but p tuts small businesses in longer holding pattern. >> that's right. i think it was probably a political move, the reason the move was made of course is the government's not ready and the private firms are not ready. had we gone ahead that would create chaos. that is probably much more expensive than having just deferred this. we still know it's coming. having another year to get ready will be fine but it's really no bonus other than avoiding chaos. tracy: right. >>> if that is the benefit i guess that's good. it ought to be better than that we do every five years a big survey about the most important problems facing these owners and we just finished one last year. health care costs was number one. been number one for 25 years. then uncertainty about the economy. energy costs, uncertainty about economic policy and cost of useless regulations and redtelln any better? tracy: right. >> if your answer is no, you know why they're depressed and optimism is not improv
and take away their right to have a voice in the workplace so the irony of this, ed, when we look at what's happening in the congress today and in the senate regarding the appointments by president obama, the irony of this is, 38 companies have signed on to legislation that would go forward to try to outlaw through the d.c. circuit the president's ability to make recess appointments. of those 38 corporations that signed on to briefs supporting that decision of the d.c. courts, those 38 companies combine have gave $6 million in campaign contributions. >> wow. >> to the republicans so we have to look at this, ed, as another attempt by the republicans. this time not to put forth legislation against workers but to be inactive in legislation that would help workers. >> how does this restrict job growth in the inner city, may year? >> well, it restricts job growth because it's having a significant impact on public sector polite. really as we've gone through the worst economy in 0 years something very unusual happened. we actually had a retraction of more than 400,000 employees during the worst

radical right reached an all-time high in 2012. the fourth consecutive year of growth. they concluded that these groups will continue to grow and become more militant during president obama second term and due to the national debate we have applied them to the evolving face of terror, both at home and abroad. additionally, we are here to be proactive and we should focus on the vulnerabilities that remain in the construction contract constructive accents available to the congress. we need to understand why one of the accused bombers was listed on to federal databases but available to travel to russia and we need to understand the vast and most cost-effective way to fix that problem we can find a solution to point the finger. the choice is ours. the christmas day bomber even though terrorist do not board the flight in the united states, the government spent about $800 million and today those machines have been removed from the airports because americans decided that they were not willing to give up their privacy for security. a few years and $800 million later, we have found a solution
met there yesterday with human rights groups and snowden was the topic of a phone conversation between president obama and russian president vladimir putin. we have two reports beginning with jim la sieda in moscow. >> richard, after the media bed lamb around the appearance yesterday and the vows from the airport, not that we got a chance to see him in the flesh, today has been pretty quiet by comparison. i guess you would say if this were a poker game, what snowden did in his meeting yesterday with human rights activists was to call putin's bluff. he signaled that he, snowden, would remain silent and not release any more damaging intelligence if russia granted him just temporary asylum while he seeks guarantees of safe passage to latin america which apparently is where he wants to end up. you recall that putin made that same offer earlier this month but snowden at the time rejected it because of that condition of silence. now he seems to be forcing putin's hand. does putin give him asylum and further damage relations with the u.s.? or does putin back off? does he flip-flop and then lo
